Default This must be the technology of Orks

I heard this story on NPR today and immediately thought that this must be Ork technology. I'm going to have to build some sort of flyer or stormboy based on it.

It's simple, maintenance free, efficient and terribly noisy. In other words, it's perfectly Orky.

Pulse Jets ............. very cool .............. very Orky!

NPR .......... National Public Radio ................. after listening to Mister Mike Malloy or Ms Randi Rhodes as Progressive talk show hosts here in the U.S. I've come to almost view Nina Totenberg, Ann Taylor and Cokie Roberts as middle of the road at NPR.

Odd .............. and Orky!!

Best,

Actually its German. They used them for the V1 "Buzz" bombs. They were noisy, hence the name.

V1s were actually even more Orky; the air intake had a one-way swing door, which was slammed shut whenever the injected fuel was ignited (and the resulting blast was forced backwards, providing thrust). The constant swing-slam-swing-slam of the intake door led to the English calling them `Doodlebugs`.

I thought that's where the "Buzz" in Buzz-bomb came from? :huh:

Eh, sounds English enough to convince me either way. :P
